Remember all those campaign promises about no rise in GST? And how as a nation we could collectively look over some light human rights violations in order to keep prices "as they is." Well, time to sharpen those pitch forks, because Valve and Steam will be implementing GST into sales starting in July. Okay, so it's not exactly the end of the world. And this is something we've been expecting for a while. But still, it's a good time as any to start complaining.
The inclusion of GST for Australian customers will arrive alongside similar measures for other countries including Japan, New Zealand, Iceland, South and Africa. And even though Steam still doesn't have local pricing for its offerings, GST will be factored into the advertised prices.
